Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Living an active life with a positive outlook, I'm an entrepreneur and life-long learner who recently was drawn into an office job for passion and financial security.

I'm outside of the mainstream, as in I question consumption, love making/cooking/crafting, and, in theory, building... and I'd love to live closer to the land one day.

I have great appreciation for quality, logical efficiency, and hilariousness, so if we ever play Cards Against Humanity you'll know how to play to my weaknesses.

Recovering from a suburban childhood, I enjoy the texture of the city and regularly escape to the woods, and I drink life in! Drawn to authentic people, with friends I am usually up for anything and am always there to listen. In the kitchen, I think that recipes are merely a platform to spring from. As a traveller, I'd prefer to live, eat, laugh with locals. Short-term/cruise/resort trips make me queasy.

I'm often one to bare my honest opinion, and during tough times I like to talk it through. I question, seeking to understand. I also have a bit of a stubborn streak - it makes me determined to do my own taxes, even though it takes me a while. I think anything is possible, we just need to get up and do it.

What's important to me? A healthy planet - starting with myself, I enjoy regular exercise and eating well. For me eating well means thinking about where my food is coming from, where it's going, what it does in my body and growing and cooking as much of it as I can. My family and my goddaughter live a little ways away, but I make an effort to visit them regularly. I grow trees and plants... lots of them.

Work-wise I'm an entrepreneur blazing a trail to create a better, more livable city. It's exciting, yes I'm scared sometimes, and no, I'm not going to tell you all about it through online chat. You can ask me about it in person if you'd like.

What about you?

You've likely heard your friends say that they can't believe that you're single because you are such a great guy. Indeed, you are:

You're type of guy that is willing to plant trees whose shade you may never sit under. You boldly ask the important questions, you're engaging in conversation and enjoy discussing just about everything, your eyes and ears are open to the world around you. Comfortable in your own skin, you have your shit together. A lust for life drives you, and you know roughly is which direction you're headed.

You're on a quest to find your life partner.

...and you've managed to read this far! Send me a message and let's see where this could go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being curious. Finding joy and excitement in the most unlikely places.

Truth. Not everyone puts honesty above civility. But truth is so much more interesting than wool over our eyes.

Grabbing the mic when someone needs to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is my enthusiasm. My mind is easily blown, I am fascinated by pattern, irony, how things work, the stories we tell ourselves. I'm going to do my best to hold on to this exuberance for the rest of my days, I think it's what keeps me young and what adds spice to life every day.

Then, perhaps, the long hair?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I think sourdough is the best thing since sliced bread - with real butter, please!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My backpack and snacks for the road.
Open communication
Connection to the natural world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of our city, the nature in our city, and our darn human nature that keeps on screwing over the rest of nature.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
TED talks and wine
Romping around the city or woods with my dog
Cruising on my bike to a patio, beach, arboretum, pub, dance-off
Planting apple seeds

Ideally, every night is spent with great people, perhaps cooking food, telling stories or playing a board game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love exploring truth! We're fascinating people. I'll be as open a book as you'll be - ask a question and I'll delve into an answer, just be ready to go there with me.

And - one more thing: I have another profile on here. I don't want to weird you out, it's not my twin, it's just an older profile with a name I'm not a fan of - I'm keeping it for now as I've answered a lot of questions on it, so it's a better judge of match potential!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You smile a lot.

You're a bit of a dreamer, and you're making those dreams a reality.

You like the idea of having a life long partnership.
